Cannot beat this place for very reasonable lodging and one block from the Malecon and Los Muretes beach. The staff is friendly the rooms are clean and the rates are great. This was our third stay. There is no elevator but the staff will help with luggage. Try to get a room facing the sidestreet, the view is better.

They were courteous, friendly and always professional. Every issue we had was attended to very quickly and efficiently. They knew who my companions were by name and would...

I stayed here and would absolutely stay again. The rates are great and the location is central to everything. Staff are very friendly and speak English with no real problems. Nice restaurant attached as well. Nice pool but it is in the middle of the restaurant. Room was very comfortable and has everything you need.

I stayed at the Hotel Rio Malecon last year and fell in love with the place - the staff really made everyone feel welcome, the restaurant/bar "Coexist" had amazing authentic Mexican and Italian food, but I felt so a part of the family that I'm staying there again this year! Hotel Rio is walking distance to everything downtown and the...

After a week at Sayulita with friends at Thanksgiving, I needed somewhere to stay by myself for two days until I could get a reasonably priced flight back to the US. I also wanted to see something of the town of Puerto Vallarta, and wasn't interested in/couldn't afford a solo stay at one of the big resorts. Hotel Rio Malecon...

The hotel staff was very quick to resolve a couple of issues that arose during my stay. 1) I made my reservations online but when I arrived there was no record. Good thing I printed the confirmation as proof. Because there was no comparable room available, the front desk upgraded me to a nicer room at no extra charge. 2)...
